. that was delivered by arizona senator jon kyl this morning. >> president obama is simply too committed to the european style of big government, that his policies have set in motion. to democrats in washington, the answer isn't to cut spending, but to raise taxes and keep on spending. republicans believe we must solve our debt crisis. and we believe we can solve it if democrats will work with us. >> all right. we do have our correspondents up early this morning. athena jones at the white house for us this morning, also our joe johns, keeping an eye on capitol hill. joe, let me start with you, forget all the symbolic votes, the one we saw yesterday could see another one today this early afternoon. forget that stuff. what is a real possibility of happening right now? how are they going to get this done? >> okay. first, you got to say, this is a poisonous environment on capitol hill and in washington in general, but the way the democrats have been able to do this before is they've reached out to a group of potentially persuadable senators in the middle. these would be people who can sort o
night at a philadelphia fund-raiser. the g.o.p. asked why he wasn't working on a deficit deal. jon cornyn was also at a fund-raiser last night. good morning, happy fourth of july weekend to you. can't we all just get along? >> apparently not in washington. listen, i think the president has a lot of reason to be frustrated with republicans. he offered them tax cuts back in the spring when they forced a government shutdown or threatening to force a government shutdown. he's put everything on the table. they have shown an unwillingness to compromise. it is an important issue in these economic times. it's not going to put a single american to work. it's not going to keep a single american in their home. it's time for them to do what they need to do, put it to bed and move along. >> can you criticize them when members of your own party are walking aassaying i'm not going to be part of this discussion anymore, until i get what i want. >> the republicans are trying to take a stand to not include tax. no one is shedding a tear about staying over fourth of july. republicans are digging in a
. the power to solve this is in our hands. >> arthel: meanwhile, arizona senator jon kyl delivering the republican address. he is accusing democrats of using the debt crisis to raise taxes instead of viewing it as an opportunity to rein in spending. >> unfortunately, after weeks of negotiations, it became clear that democrats in washington did not view this crisis as an opportunity to rein in spending. instead, they saw it as an opportunity to impose huge tax increases on american families and small businesses. president obama is simply too committed to the european style of big government, that his policies have set in motion. to democrats in washington, the isn't to cut spending, but to raise taxes and keep on spending. democrats claim they would only target the privileged few, but behind the scenes, they argue for much broader tax increases. >> arthel: it looks like we may be hearing from senator reid very soon. in the meantime, the senate is expected to vote early sunday morning to cut off debate on its own debt ceiling plan. rick? >> rick: just as advertised, senator harry reid
politics. job hunt jon -- jon huntsman and his campaign manager parting ways today. and then of course you have the vice presidential nomination. they want chris christie to run for president, but he will not, hint, hint, pick him for vice president. and mark rubio announcing as if we have been waiting for it that he will make his first out of his home state speech as a senator next month at the reagan library in california. is that a thing? the new awkwardness of course with how fast things are changing in washington is that marko rubio has said as recently as this past weekend he probably will not vote to raise the debt ceiling. in march, he wrote an op-ed entitled why i won't raise the debt ceiling, and that will be awkward to take to the ronald reagan liberal as statements are being circulated from reagan that if you do not vote to raise it you are all but a traitor. and then there's bob mcdonald. bob mcdonald has had a wobbly takeoff as a national republican figure. just days after he was inaugurated as virginia's governor, the republican national party put him fourth as their face of
,000,000.20000000 dollars, the next four candidates according to these figures, tim pawlenty, ron paul, jon pawlenty, ron paul, jon huntsman, that does not even add up to 15 million. it is still seen as a slow money raising cycle? guest: because mitt romney had done the things that were necessary to get off to a fast start. relative to the rest of the field, however, when you look at this point in the 2008 cycle, mitt romney raised more than $20 million. rudy giuliani, $17 million. john mccain, the eventual nominee, $11 million. three big guns out front, competing against an open democratic field, we did not know that president obama's fund-raising operation would be the juggernaut that it turned out to be. at that point, with an unknown opponent, there was more fund- raising by individual candidates and folks using the gop nomination than we see at this point in a comparable cycle where we do know who the opponent is going to be. they know that money will be important and yet the numbers are substantially behind. it is disappointing. it has to be a letdown for the republican field. host: kenneth vogel w

jon kyl from arizona. as you know, he was part of the talk with vice president biden said that text revenue -- tax revenue increases have been on the table. not tax increase but the tax revenue have. listen to this and i want you to respond. >> it has been on the table. we have been talking about increased revenues. we're not talking about increasing taxes. if the government sells something and gets money from it, that is revenue. if there is a user fee of some kind. if we want to raise it to keep up with the times, that is revenue. if you add up the revenues that we have agreed to, we republicans agreed to, it's between 150 and $200 billion. >> bret: so the statement that republicans are putting a gun to the head that they are not coming to the table with anything, is that disingenuous? >> well, listen, i was obviously at the table for the biden talks. we have a commitment we don't talk about what was said and not said in the room. i think there is no question that you have had many republican leaders make comments like no revenues at all. if that is wrong, we welcome that. as the

boehnor, eric canton, mitch mcconnell, jon kyl, collectively they passed 19 votes during the bush administration to raise the debt ceiling, just those four guys. raising the debt ceiling is not something that usually has a big fight over it. sometimes it does, sometimes part of congress tries to leverage this vote because it's something that absolutely has to pass. in the same way crafty politicians will sometimes attach unrelated things to the pentagon budget because the pentagon budget everybody agrees has to pass, in that same way, politicians in the past tried to attach things to the debt ceilings. they not only failed, they so misunderstood the dynamics of their own party, john boehnor is so bad at his job, a political pundit at 9:00 p.m. on nbc, using this as a metaphor of what just happened to them. the breeze helps, i think. republicans blew it. they totally, utterly, 100% blew it, and today they had to essentially surrender. >> republicans senate leader mitch mcconnell presented. >> after weeks and months of fighting about it, senate republicans today proposed allowing pr
